Read full description of the books:
Newly married in the summer, I was tasked with cooking Christmas dinner by myself for the first time this year, and this book was invaluable.
The book starts with Christmas cakes and puddings that you ought to be making in November if you're doing things properly, though I bought this in late December by which point it was a bit too late. Maybe next year...
There are then all sorts of recipes for party food and nice meals to serve around Christmas time, from roast ham to mince pies to homemade sausage rolls to mulled wine.
The bit I really wanted the book for, however, was the chapter called, "The Last Thirty Six Hours," which talks you minute by minute through cooking the Christmas Dinner, from early on Christmas Even, including breaks for watching a carol service, opening presents, having the neighbours round and having a glass of champagne! I followed this almost to the letter, making everything from scratch (cranberry sauce, gravy, stuffing, bread sauce etc) and it didn't let me down. So, so useful.
I probably won't follow it quite so religiously next time, when I'll hopefully be feeling a bit more confident and willing to experiment, but I suspect it will still be a useful guide.
Finally, there were some good ideas for what to do with various leftovers.
Overall, there's nothing very radical in here - the book is from about 1990 - and if you've been cooking Christmas dinner and catering for Christmas parties for the last twenty years, this may not be for you (though you'd probably still find one or two recipes that caught your eye). But if this is your first Christmas or you're not feeling wildly confident, I don't thing there's anyone better than Delia to guide you through it.
